Erdogan Says Khashoggi Was Victim of ‘Ferocious’ Pre-Planned Murder
Jamal Khashoggi's death was pre-planned and was not spontaneous or an accident, Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Tuesday in a highly anticipated speech, which flat-out denied Saudi Arabia's claim that the journalist's killing was not premeditated. Erdogan revealed that a Saudi team carried out reconnaissance at two separate locations and cameras and a hard drive were removed from the kingdom's consulate prior to the journalist's arrival on October 2 for his scheduled appointment.
